The multi-talented, award-winning singer, songwriter, musician and actor has just announced that he will hold court at the Wynn Las Vegas in the Encore Theater for six nights in December and three more in March. An Evening with Dwight Yoakam & The Bakersfield Beat will take fans on an adventure through the artist’s career from his early days in California and continues as he helps refine the California country and Bakersfield sound that has influenced so many current rising stars.
Dwight is certainly no stranger to Vegas. In fact, in 1992, his cover of “Suspicious Minds” was featured in the soundtrack for the movie Honeymoon in Vegas.
Tickets for this musical event go on sale August 23 at the Wynn box office or website. Show dates are December 4, 6, 7, 10, 12, and 14, and March 4, 6 and 7.
With 25-million records sold and over 40 hit singles charted, Dwight has become an internationally acclaimed artist. In addition to his multiple Grammy awards, he has also been named the American Music Association’s Artist of the Year and will be inducted into the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame during their 49th Anniversary Gala on October 14.
